Butterfly Challenge #151

We are now on the letter 'H' for the next Butterfly challenge - read all about it here where you can also see the lovely cards made as inspiration.  The six elements are shown below although you don't necessarily need to include them all 

I remembered that I have an embossing folder with herringbone pattern on it so have used that as the herringbone element, also used the colours orange, sand yellow and hazel and the butterfly has alighted onto a strip of fancy hemp which I just happened to have in my ribbon box.  The yellow layer was embossed and then lightly sponged with a little ink to highlight the pattern.  I deliberately left the card fairly minimal so that the herringbone pattern is shown as much as possible.

Embossing Folder - Herrinbone design from Crafter's Companion
Butterfly - dies from Sizzix
Sentiment - free stamp onto a banner die cut Creative Expressions
Square dies - Tonic
